I rarely make breakfast for dinner, so this was a fun Friday eve-ning, let me tell you.

Tempeh bacon, tofu scramble, tangerine and toasted fat free english muffin

The tofu scramble consisted of:
tofu that was lightly marinaded in tamari
julienned carrots
black beans
nutritional yeast
lemon juice
olive oil (mister)
white and maiitake mushrooms
dried thyme
dried oregano
minced garlic
crushed red pepper &
fresh chopped basil

I like to add the garlic in at the end of the scramble, right before I finally add the chopped basil.

Shot 2.

I find myself breaking out the tofu scramble action come spring and summer, a great way to utilize eclectic farmer's market purchases, not to mention a fairly quick meal.

Speaking of farmer's markets, here is my haul this week:

Baby bok choy, apples, kale raab, roasted hazelnuts and morel mushrooms.

Plus, a wood-fired poppyseed bagel for breakfast from Tastebud Farms.

brinner! yes! I'm also partial to brunch, linner, and supfast (leftover supper for breakfast!) That bagel looks so lovely.

VeggieGirl said...

Haha, I LOVE the term "brinner" - definitely sounds better than "deakfast" ;0)

Poppyseed bagels = divine.

My mom used to cook breakfast for dinner a lot when I was a was one of my favorite things! Granted, that was when I ate eggs, but even my omni mom loves tofu scramble now.

Breakfast for dinner is probably the best meal ever! Pancakes, tofu scrambles, waffles- you name it! It's a great way to convince my family to eat some vegan pancakes/waffles (they're not quite ready for the tofu scrambles...)

Vaala said...

Breakfast is my absolute favourite meal of the day (okay, so dessert probably beats it but you don't usually have dessert every day) so sometimes it ends up being eaten 3 times in one favourite thing to do on a bad day!

I'm a huge binner fan. For some reason my cravings are pretty consistent- dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner... I think my body is on permanent opposite day


Megan said...

I just had breakfast for dinner too! Sunday night though. Yum.

Ps: Is it ok for me to link to you on my own food blog? I didn't want to seem creepy & just add you there without letting you know first. ;D

The Voracious Vegan said...

WOW! Now, that is my kind of breakfast, and it is perfect any time of the day or night. Love your blog!

DJ said...

tempeh bacon is just the best, plus that poppy seed bagel looks delicious!

Gaia said...

I love Brinners! We usually have pancakes and tofu scramble... and I recently learned that eating pancakes for dinner on a Friday the 13th will bring good fortune (as in cash!)


Sam said...

Yum! I'm so jealous of your lovely haul from the farmers' market!

Mikaela said...

Ooo... black beans in the scrambler. Great idea!

for those who are curious, kale raab is a springtime sprout, of well, kale.

similar to broccoli raab.
